Hennie’s short list of local eateries

On your doorstep (within 5 minutes walk)
To compile a list of eateries in Cape Town is, at best, a dangerous endeavour - there's already one too many foodie about claiming their latest "Top X-list". I prefer a binary approach: either "what's good within a reasonable amble", or "would I really get into a car for what they offer" (my credit card statement have these listed in random repeat order; for lists of famous or latest-hype-chef experiments please check in on what the experts claim at sources such as https://insideguide.co.za/cape-town/best-restaurants/ or https://www.eatout.co.za/article/best-of-cape-town/ ) These however, are quite literally, on your doorstep:
Kleinsky's made their name as THE go to place for the best New York style bagels in Cape Town. Recently moved to new larger premises with more seating, but same friendly staff. Avo and cream cheese on sesame bagel and a double espresso for me - every time! Or take one to-go and enjoy it from a promenade bench overlooking the waves - you might just spot a whale / pod of dolphins. 92 Regent Rd

Great for breakfast (& lunch)! A trendy eatery which means the that on weekend mornings the queue can be out to the pavement (20-25min wait). 90 Regent Rd

At Moro you don't taste, you sample! SA's best gelato opened their second shop - on our doorstep! If you're vegan (or in the market to have your worldly beliefs challenged) try the chocolate sorbet for something out of this world. Its sooo creamy that it doesn't taste a bit like sorbet and it only has 15% sugar - carries my 2yr old daughter's stamp of approval! 85 Regent Road

Need a quick lunch, or can't decide what to have for dinner? There's plenty of options available at the indoor market - oysters, sushi, pizza, shawarma, biltong, mexican, burgers, you name it - all under one roof. Plus there's live music some evenings of the week. 30 Regent Rd

Classic Italian food with ocean views. Beg (or if needed, bribe) the Maître d' for a table on the terrace. The waiting staff have been around for 20+yrs, the appetiser bread is to die for and what's better than settling into a sofa under the trees for a relaxed glass of Sauvignon Blanc while watching the world go by? 281 Beach Rd

Been to the beach once too often and prefer a poolside day? The President Hotel's pool deck is open to outside visitors. (note: Ts&Cs recently changed and they now charge an entrance fee of R150 and require a minimum food bill of R200 per person) 4 Alexander Rd

A stiff stroll rather than just an amble
Little Italy in the Mother City - best pizza in town, great pasta, a true institution. When that's where the Italians eat and the owner / manager / host is Italian, you know its the real deal. Lovely wood fireplace adds to the laid-back atmosphere and homely feeling. Also our go-to for pizza take away - never more than 15mins from placing the order if they're not too busy. 323 Main Rd, Sea Point

Grilled beef fillet with mushroom risotto and mushroom sauce is soooo good we've even ordered it as take out! The rest of the menu is also delicious, but that mushroom risotto... njum! 341 Main Rd, Sea Point

In the market for a really good steak? These guys do a good job. And The Cremery is around the corner for after dinner ice cream! Ocean views from the terrace. 163 Beach Road, Mouille Point

Trendy hangout on weekend mornings - caution: lots of people in active wear! There's way more than just food stalls, and they now have a bar. Consider stocking up on fresh produce (organic and directly from the farm), bread, meat, fish, cheese and other delicacies. By far the best place to in the Waterfront if you don't like shops! Also open on Wednesday evenings. Note: this one just makes it into my "stiff stroll" list, but we'll pardon you the carbon emissions if your legs don't carry you that far - it is a 4.6km walk. cnr Beach Rd & Haul Rd

In the market for a drink (and something to eat) with a view? Grab an outside table at Harveys on a sunny day - views of the ocean and tandem paragliders spiralling down to a landing on the promenade lawn. 221 Beach Rd

Perch for breakfast or get your fix at the counter. Never leave without a rye bread and add a sourdough for good measure. My 2yr old daughter makes me go there to buy her croissants. The vibe at the newer location in Greenpoint isn't quite the same. 185 Bree St, Cape Town City Centre
